LONDON (VIP-NEWS) — Reunion is a very popular word in the Live Music Industry nowadays and time has come to Cliff Richard and The Shadows who reunite for an arena tour in 2009 to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
They dominated the charts in the late 1950s and 1960s and notched up 19 number one hits between them.
Their hits included Move It, Living Doll and Travellin' Light. It will be the first time they have performed in concert together for 20 years.
The group say it will be their final tour.
Initially formed as a backing band for Sir Cliff Richard, The Shadows were originally called The Drifters until finding out there was already a US band with the same name.
The Shadows also appeared with him in films including The Young Ones and Summer Holiday.
The line-up split in 1968 to pursue individual careers. The Shadows toured throughout the 1970s and 1980s while Sir Cliff achieved huge success as a solo star.
